Bottle savers for the frugal RVer: Get every last drop!

We try to be frugal, at least with some things, and getting that last drop of hand lotion out of the bottle is one of them. We have been known to do the tap, pound, dance, squuueeeeze sequence, and also to balance one bottle on top of the other precarious-style. Nothing has worked well. Until I discovered these bottle savers…

Bottle savers, a frugal solution!

I found these wonderful bottle savers and what a difference they’ve made! Similar ones can be found on Amazon. There are even ones for ketchup, mayo and honey! Who knew things like this existed?

All you have to do is screw the two lotion bottles to the bottle saver caps and let them do the work. Do I miss the tap dance sequence? Nope, not one bit! Now if I could only find a way to get that last little bit of toothpaste out of the tube without cutting it open… Oh, wait… there is a way to do that.

I super glue two open ended caps together, (especially for the pump hand soap bottles and shampoo bottles) seems most are the same thread. Just keep a couple of the pumps, then break out the pumps and glue caps together and save for future.

Just add water to bottled products, shake and use…contents. Maybe a bit thinner but still useful. Cut bottom off tubes and scrape out contents as needed. Works for me!

I use a comb to squeeze the last bit of hair cream or tooth paste out of the tube(s). Start at the end and apply pressure along to the cap end! Recycle plastic! (Also keeps the contents out of the landfills and recycling equipment).

Nuts! Someone already invented it! And I have been using duct tape to hold one on top of the other all this time? Now I have to figure out the cost of 3″ of duct tape, vs. the cost of this device. If you buy a two bottle package, they should provide one of these as a premium. Kinda neat tho.

You can usually just stand the one upside down on the other for a few minutes, gravity does the work and no need for another device. Learned it working at a restaurant in my teens.

My goodness, how much more useless plastic are we going to put in the landfills?

Hmmm, we just cut the bottle open, and use up the little bit left before we start a new one, saves stacking them up. As dry as it’s been don’t last long.

No kidding!

We just cut the bottoms off whatever it is and use fingers to get the last drop(s) out.

The cost of the bottle saver is more than you will ever save using them
